AA ‘Big Book’ – Quote
We found the Great Reality deep down within us. In the last analysis it is only there that He may be found. It was so with us. – Pg. 55 – We Agnostics

Even though you are a unique human being, you are not so unique that your recovery is any different then thousands before you. If you think we don’t understand, then your disease is playing tricks on you because it doesn’t want you getting well with us.
I name three reasons why I am just like every other chemical dependent seeking recovery.
Today I will use my mind to actually visualize what I want my life to look like. I will give myself the gift of seeing my life through this beautiful lens. My thoughts have a creative power, they reach out, shape and template my experience. What I see as true for me, can be true for me, if I am willing sustain my vision and do the work I need to do to get there. Today I will picture doors opening for me where there were none before. I will take my thoughts seriously. I’ll decide on what I’d like to see manifest in my life and I will carry it in my mind’s eye and take daily steps toward actualizing it. I will see it as if it is already a reality. Then I’ll let it go again and again and again and allow the wisdom of the universe to bring those experiences and opportunities toward me that allow me to take the next right action.
I have faith in my own vision

Gaining our strength in recovery by admitting our powerlessness in addiction is a mystery to us. But, the First Step says we are powerless over ‘our drug of choice’ and not powerless over ‘our recovery.’ Don’t limit yourself.
I am powerfully recovering.

The beauty and the power of AA lies in identification. No one in AA ever told me what I was. If you try to tell me I’m an alcoholic or I’m this or that, I just have automatic knee-jerk reaction defense mechanisms that come into play and I just shut you out. You can’t get to me that way. But in AA, I’d be sitting at the back of the room and you’d be talking about yourself, so my defenses are down, and I start to identify. – Bob D.
